Rodolfo Maceda, 62, of Sta. Ana, Manila, surrendered to the NBI Tuesday and admitted stabbing to death his daughter-in-law Mary Jane Maceda, 37, last Sunday.
Maceda was drunk that Sunday night, had a verbal clash with Mary Jane at their house before strangling and stabbing her on the shoulder in front of her children, earlier reported the Manila Police District.
Maceda said he was angry because Mary Jane neglected his 2 grandchildren in the absence of his son who is out of the country. She always hurts the children which makes me sad, Maceda told reporters.
Maceda went into hiding after the killing and has been the object of a manhunt until his surrender at the NBI headquarters , NBI-SMD head agentGarcia said.
The NBI holds the suspect while waiting for the MPD to take him into their custody.
